I just recorded a podcast review of the new XMen movie. If you wanna know what I thought of Xmen Apocalypse, please listen to the review above. There are no spoilers in the movie, but I give you a general overview, theme, and I point out the highlights and a few of the low lights of the film.
I pulled this info from the XMen Movie official site:
Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
Action / Adventure
I have a small confession. I love superhero movies and tv shows. I watch way more superhero television shows than I probably should. When I was recording this podcast as well as talking on Periscope about this project, I realized, ‘Wow. I know a lot about superheroes.’ I will be doing my Youtube video review about this film shortly.
